to boston mayor tom menino as well as massachusetts governor deval patrick to extend his thoughts with that community right now and says the administration will stand by them, offer them whatever assistance they need as they deal with this situation. we do have a statement from the white house which i can read to you, tamron. it was released a short time ago. it says "the president has been notified of the incident in boston. his administration is in contact with state and local authorities. he directed his administration to provide whatever assistance is necessary in the investigation and response." i can tell you the vice president has also been made aware of this situation. he extended his thoughts and prayers to those in boston right now who are dealing with what is such an incredibly difficult situation. as is customary in these types of incidents, tamron, pennsylvania avenue outside of the white house has been shut down to foot traffic. that is really out of an abundance of caution, of course, a security measure to make sure just in case that the white house is being protect
deval patrick. they have addressed the press several times. it will be the boston police department giving updates. greg was in the medic tent, speaking to us by phone when he saw the first responders spring into action. did you see the people brought in, did you see the kind of injuries that people were sustaining. >> i did. and to put it bluntly, i would prefer not describing what i saw. and would say only people in the military or perhaps emts responding to accident victims, something that have sort. it was not something i would want to see again. it was bloody injuries, ranging from what i would guess were superficial to much more severe than that. you can swek late based on what you've seen, the medical reports, i saw the immediate victims being brought in, so it was not pretty. >> greg who ran the marathon today was in the medic tent at moment of the explosion. and i hope you're feeling better and thank you so much for joining us tonight. appreciate it. >> my prayers are out to the families. >> thank you, greg. we have a statement by secretary napolitano on the boston explosio
patrick, governor deval patrick here is taking care to describe the location of the bombing. the boylston street area. that whole area around the finish line of the marathon as an active crime scene. in a technical sense, does that mean that it's still a place in which they are collecting evidence and so essentially has to be sealed from any outside contamination? >> they'll do their best. i mean, i think a large area there is sealed, and certainly the area around the street and the route is going to be very, very carefully examined for forensic evidence by both the boston police department and the fbi. now that's, of course, potentially important to a future prosecution, but right now much more importantly, it's important that evidence is not contaminated so you can do good forensic analysis and try to track it back in a way that you can identify who did this, where it came from, what sorts of materials were used, whether or not there's a certain signature associated with these bombs that the fbi or alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives, atfe, has seen in the past. so, you know, it's
a good working relationship between president obama and governor deval patrick has allowed a very smooth handoff from the boston police to the fbi. in watching just the press conferences so far, they've been sending the right signals of having a joint communicative working relationship. and that's critical to having an effective investigation. >> you and i were talking before about lockerbie, how you could determine through finding little particles of machinery that this was perhaps done by a certain kind of detonator. how far along are we? we already know now it was something to do with a circuit board. what does that tell you? >> they're saying they found a circuit board. how big of a piece, we don't know. remember in another case, it was about the size of your thumbnail and took well over a year before that was really nailed down. i think in this case because you're not having to go out and look for debris scattered all over fields of scotland, this is going to be much easier to develop the forensic case of putting the evidence together. >> can you find out where somebody bought somet
told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to the officials in charge. i'm told that the breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. i'm told that's the lord & taylor not too far from the finish line and close to the second site of the explosion. i'm also told video from a boston television station also was used during the video analysis that helps contribute to the progress in that breakthrough. and significantly i'm told from that analysis the source tells me authorities now believe they have identified a suspect, an individual who placed one of the explosive devices at that location of the second explosion. i repeatedly asked whether this person was in custody, i could not get further answers. but i did get from this source a clear indication that the authorities believe they have identified this individual and that that is now the focus of the investigation. i was told to expect more information to be released p
here, the governor of massachusetts, governor deval patrick, he's getting his mic on. we did, as i said, anticipate a press conference at the top of the 8:00 hour. but, again, that was unexpectedly stopped. governor, how are you? >> sorry for the technical difficulty. >> no problems, live television. there is a lot, obviously, going on in this investigation. there is a lot you probably cannot talk about or do not want to publicly talk about, so i'm not going to press you. but i do want to ask, is there anything about the investigation that you can tell people that you want people to know. >> i can tell you and everyone that it's a thorough investigation, very methodical, and they make progress every hour and every day. but it's going to take time. you know, this is a -- this is a crime scene that's several blocks, and they're going through it quarter-inch and square-inch by square-inch. and building a case and following the evidence. and that does take time. >> how difficult -- >> everybody's patience -- >> how difficult is it when you have 30 different agencies, joint terrorism ta
, deval patrick. a deadly terrorist attack in his state. and he joins me now. governor, how are you? >> i'm well, piers, how are you? >> you're such a cheery individual by nature. but even you must have been a bit rocked by the events that happened here with your marathon. >> well, it's been -- it's been a shocking and for many people a shattering time. but, you know, as a community, of greater boston and commonwealth wide community and as a national community, we have really pulled together. and there are millions of acts of kindness and grace alongside the horror, and that's a part of how we will heal. >> the fbi, we're expected to have a press conference this evening. they cancelled it in the end after some delay. is there anything we should be reading into this? do you know why they cancelled it? >> no. no. it's a fluid investigation. it's a very comprehensive and methodical investigation, which i think is important for all of us. and, you know, i have said to people, it isn't so until the fbi says it's so. they've led a broad and well-coordinated investigation with all of these diffe
